We would like to invite you to the next IATEFL webinar 'Designing language classes and tasks with learner engagement in mind' with Sarah Mercer
To be learning, learners need to be engaged. Learning needs action and attention. In today’s fast-paced world, everyone finds their attention being pulled in all directions and the struggle to concentrate and keep focus becomes ever more difficult. While there are no easy, quick solutions to the battle for learners’ attention, there are some strategies informed by psychology which help us understand how to design tasks and classes that are more likely to get learners engaged and actively learning. In this webinar, I will explain why engagement is so important for contemporary language educators to understand. The main focus will be on exploring a number of principles and concrete actions that can inform task design to capture and maintain learners’ attention. Without learner engagement, no matter how great your task, learning will not take place. Engagement is the key to successful learning.
